Major Food Events in Sf (and Nearby)

Just food, no wine or drink events. Any I missed @seantimberlake @amybsherman or @gabimoskowitz ?
  1. March 26: Taste of the Nation, San Francisco
    Fundraiser for No Kid Hungry/Share our Strength, a nonprofit dedicated to eradicating childish hunger in the US. Over 50 restaurants will be serving up appetizers and drinks. http://bit.ly/1Nc0pFr
  2. April 9-12: Pebble Beach Food & Wine
    Down near Monterey & Carmel-By-The-Sea this is the celebrity chef driven fancy pants festival. I'm not a huge fan of it but if you live and breathe Food TV & Top Chef, here's your chance to meet and eat their food. http://bit.ly/19ilRet
  3. April 19: Meals on Wheels Star Chefs & Vintner's Gala
    A Black Tie fundraiser for the SF Meals on Wheels chapter that provides meals for home bound seniors, this is the top single evening SF food event. With over 100 chefs & 90 Vintner's, you get the appetizer stations, then the three course meal, then the dessert stations with wines and cocktails throughout. And of course there's the silent and live auction. There's something amazing about watching drunk rich people bid on wine cellars or private dinners by fancy chefs! http://bit.ly/1bqKQ0N
  4. May 7: Taste of the City
    Benefitting Project Open Hand, a nonprofit that provides meals to seniors and the critically ill. This is a new event, replacing their previous Desserts First fundraiser. Restaurants will be serving up nibbly items for the guests to enjoy. http://bit.ly/1HyiUBR
  5. July 24-26: Gilroy Garlic Festival
    About 90 minutes south of San Francisco. Everything from your standard garlic fries to garlic ice cream and garlic chocolate (not recommended). You'll smell the festival miles away before you get there. http://bit.ly/19iqcym
  6. August 15-16: San Francisco Street Food Festival
    The hugely popular street food festival moves to Pier 70 from thee Mission. Booths from food trucks, restaurants and carts all being sold to the public. Expect long lines but good cheap eats. http://bit.ly/1CVN30x
  7. August 20-23: Eat Drink SF
    San Francisco's answer to Pebble Beach but with out the annoying super rich folks. Well they're different annoying super rich folks I guess. I've missed it for the last couple of years for various reasons but it's fun to sample and taste foods from restaurants around the city. The Grand Tasting sessions are where you get more bang for your buck. http://bit.ly/1GQE1PO
